Courtesy of a grant from the Johnny Burke Children’s Foundation, art camps at the Marshall M. Fredericks Sculpture Museum this summer will be affordable for more youth. Up to ten full scholarships are available to students who demonstrate financial need.
“The Johnny Burke Children’s Foundation’s generous gift makes it possible for the Museum to offer ten full scholarships to youth in the Great Lakes Bay Region for the summer art camp program,” said Marilyn Wheaton, Museum Director. “This is the fourth year we have hosted the art camps and kids love it,” she said.
Starting Monday, June 11 the Marshall M. Fredericks Sculpture Museum will host four art camps for children ages 8 to 13. The classes will be taught by SVSU art education major, Tara Parker, and will focus on sculpting, drawing, and painting projects, while exploring different cultures and well known artists. Each class is limited to 12 children. There are both one- and two-week sessions.
Session 1: June 11 to 15 from 9a.m. to 3 p.m. for ages 11 to 13.
Session 2: June 25 to 29 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. for ages 8 to 10.
Session 3: July 9 to 13 and 16 to 20 from 9 a.m.to noon for ages 8 to 10.
Session 4: July 9 to 13 and 16 to 20 from 1 to 4 p.m. for ages 11 to 13.
The registration fee is $163 per child per session. Registration and payment for each camp is due two weeks before the camp begins. Refunds will not be made later than one week before the start of camp.
The Museum is located in the Arbury Fine Arts Center on the campus of Saginaw Valley State University, 7400 Bay Rd., University Center, MI 48710.
